After Hurricane Sandy: Relief, Rebuilding and Climate Change

Rescue efforts by boat

Hurricane Sandy has plowed through the Northeast United States, killing dozens of people and causing billions of dollars in damage. People are working together to pick up the pieces through mutual aid and solidarity. We list here some of the ways you can get involved with relief and rebuilding. The hard works starts after the hurricane parties and disaster porn.

Hurricane Sandy was also an example of the "new normal" of life during rapid climate change. We also share some links to people writing about that crisis.
